Last updated : 29 February 2012 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have been handed a double blow ahead of next months Edinburgh Derby, with the news that Isaiah Osbourne and Ivan Sproule will both miss the game.

Both players have landed suspensions for the trip to Tynecastle, as the Hibees look to continue thier recent form and pull themsleves away from the foot of the SPL table.

Hibees striker Leigh Griffiths is also walking a suspension tightrope, with the news that if he picks up a booking against St Mirren in the SPL clash on Saturday at Easter Road, he too will miss the trip accross the city.

Osbourne has been superb for the club lately, so it's a big blow, while Sproule has found himself in and out the team in recent weeks
